I am longing for cooler autumn weather to arrive. Today's temperature is over 30 degrees again and it's just so wearing.
I made this small textile piece, Mountain Mists, a couple of years ago after thinking of
mists in the wonderful private gardens of the NSW Blue Mountains during the
autumn months. These mists dilute the light and wrap a soft cloak of moisture
around the trees and their fallen leaves.
Mountain Mists was made from torn strips of chiffon
to depict theses mists. Three shades were used and were interwoven with other
textiles to create shadows. Some stamping on the chiffon was used to create
pattern. The quilt was hand stitched in irregular lines to indicate the layers
of mist that float through the landscape. Five fabric leaves have been
caught under chiffon to represent all the fallen foliage of the season
It makes me so cool to think of these mists because I know the temperatures will drop as the season progresses.
It happens often that I lose my way. Sometimes I veer along different paths, interested to follow snippets of information that appeal. Other times, I stay focused for a long time before falling hard into another diversion.
It's all good, though. Trying to be more open to experiences and opportunities is challenging, don't you think?
